We stayed two nights in this lovely cabin in March 2013. The party consisted of two couples and we all really enjoyed the accommodation. There are lots of walks near the cabin and the stunning views … More
We are really glad you enjoyed your stay with us in March this year. Thanks for your comments on the beds - just to confirm these are solid oak adult sized single beds which are slightly lower to the floor but have substantial mattresses and bed coverings. In the two years they have been in the cottage we haven't had a negative comment on them but thank you for your feedback as it is very important for us to continue improving the property.

"Log Cabin was fantastic!!!!!!!!"
Myself and my partner went to the log cabin for 1 night on his time home from Afghanistan, when we arrived at the log cabin it was beautiful, nicely furnished and clean. There were also great views and the hot tub was amazing.
We had a great nights stay at the log cabin and will definately be going back for longer on my partners return. It was a great night away to relax.

"Amazing views, extremely comfortable and one of the most relaxing places we have visited."
We spent the weekend at Ben Lawers Rest in November 2012. The accommodation is of a 5 star standard, spacious and warm. The views are quite stunning in front and behind the cabin and being set away form the rest of the complex you have complete privacy. The hot tub is amazing and adds to the luxury.
We have young children and it was perfect for our family of 4.
There are some great walks nearby for all levels. We walked down to loch tay through the oak wood and didn't see any other people. Again the views are spectacular. All 4 of us had baths and there was still plenty of hot water ! We will definitely return.

Ben Lawers Cabin is located in a beautiful area, quiet and tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the world! We arrived and were pleasantly surprised at the detail and effort put into the cabin, it had a very homely touch! We were very comfortable during our weeks stay, the hot tub was wonderful and we spent a lot of our time in there, gazing at the scenery! It was a perfect getaway and was a lovely place to stay on our first trip to Scotland. We most definitely want to return and would recommend to all who enjoy beautiful scenery, walking, wildlife and pure relaxation!
